TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2019 – Scotiabank today unveils Path to Impact, an artful installation that brings to life the journey of starting and building a business in Canada. Standing up to 10 feet tall, the immersive installation will be open to the public in downtown Toronto during Small Business Week.
The installation will open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET from Monday, October, 21 to Friday, October, 25, at an outdoor space at 464 King St. West, near the busy intersection of King and Spadina. It includes first-person anecdotes from business owners and statistics about five key stages of the business journey, including:
- The Big Idea: Business success starts with a big idea. Sometimes it’s an idea so big that it’s hard to process, but it will change everything.
- Curveballs: This is the stage where thinking turns into doing at an extremely fast pace, and business owners face many curveballs along the way.
- Doubt & Isolation: In this stage, business owners can feel stuck and question their vision.
- Closing Doors: It is here when business owners feel like giving up but remember why they started in the first place, then persevere and keep going.
- Impact: Finally, the big idea comes to life. Business owners look back on the journey and see how every step has led to impact.
“We know that many Canadian business owners go into business to make an impact on their community, yet often face a number of obstacles along the way. This art installation aims to bring that path to life in an interactive way, giving visitors a first-hand glimpse into that journey,” said Jason Charlebois, Senior Vice President, Small Business for Scotiabank. “We’re committed to working with businesses of all sizes to make their path to impact less of a struggle and more of a success.”
